Free Webinar: A Homeopathic Approach to Adjustments with Harold Davis and Topaz

Definition of homeopathya system of medical practice that treats a disease especially by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would in larger amounts produce in healthy persons symptoms similar to those of the disease. In other words, while a great deal of a homeopathic remedy might kill one, a pinch of homeopathy can be great. I use the concepts of homeopathy as a metaphor for how I work with some Photoshop adjustments and filters.

Webinar description: Join Topaz for this advanced presentation in which Harold will explain why he uses Topaz Adjust, Topaz Simplify, Topaz Glow 2, and Topaz Impressions 2, and provide concrete examples of how he uses these tools. Besides digital homeopathy, he’ll discuss additional ideas about creating digital art in Photoshop such as how this work relates to the Hegelian triad. Finally, Harold will provide some concrete examples of how he used the homeopathic approach to Topaz in his workflow to create his unique photographic art.

“I’ve been called a digital artist who uses photographs as my source material,” Harold says, “and I believe this is a good way to consider my work.” He likes to take his imagery slightly beyond conventional photography using digital painting, but not so far beyond photography that he would “lose the suspension of disbelief inherent in the photographic capture.” In creating this syncretic mixture of photography and digital art, Harold Davis says that among his favorite “go-to tools are the brilliant Topaz Labs Photoshop plugins.”
